Softupdates are the FreeBSD equivalent. From my point of view they perform
better than a traditional journaling FS (do a google search for the original
usenix papers on these).

I also find they speed up I/O quite alot, esp for fast changing filesystems
like mail spools.

You've never had to fsck a 2TB+ array, have you?... This is why we
DEMAND journaling UFS2..... or ZFS.
